Twitter is experimenting with several of its modalities in a bid to diversify and make the experience worth it for its many users. Currently, it is tinkering with a new 'Related Tweets' feature which will expand its horizon for a better tomorrow.
The moment you frequent a Tweet, you will notice this facility towards the southward region of the Tweet Box. It will provide access to Related Tweets. As the phrase suggests, it is all about other information related to the said Tweet. No other applications carry this service currently. The fact that the relation between your Tweet and the others presented is one of common keywords seems obvious.
This is an experiment undertaken by Twitter. And like all experiments it may succeed or fail. It all depends upon its capability of becoming popular with the audience and proving to be a profitable venture. Still in its initial stages, whether it will be broadcast to the rest of the user base is a question that only future times hold the key to.
Twitter will begin its IPO before the end of 2013. That it will have to share its corporatefigures with the rest of the world spells the word “change”. Ultimately, Twitter will continue improving its features in order to gain a higher status in the online game of skill and subtlety.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
